My boyfriend and I are driving from Portland to Northern Cali (Greagle) in July. We'll be leaving Portland early July 4 and arriving in Greagle July 5. The plan is to head down I-5 to Eugene where we'll bear east to US-97. We wanted to camp somewhere midway and I was thinking the Crater Lake area might be the best location. I've never been to Central Oregon before and wanted to make sure that we're staying in a great spot since we only have one afternoon/night to enjoy the scenery. Another possibility is to drive to Bend from Portland and leave the majority of the driving to the 5th. Any suggestions on a route and camping sites? Thanks for your help!
